How Green Is Your Love? Joie de Vivres Eco-Romance Package Helps Romance Grow
San Francisco (Vocus) January 25, 2010
Each year about 1 billion Valentines Day cards are sent, making the holiday the second largest day of the year for greeting cards. This year, Joie de Vivre is encouraging lovers to show their affection for each other (and Mother Earth) in a more environmentally conscious way. With free e-cards and a new eco-friendly package, Joie de Vivre is offering romantic indulgences that have less impact on the environment.
The new Sowing the Seeds of Love eco-romance package lets guests who book a hotel stay at one of Joie de Vivres 35 hotels between Jan. 21 and Dec. 15, 2010 (for travel between Feb. 11 and Dec. 31, 2010) enjoy ecodisiacs (environmentally-friendly aphrodisiacs), from organic chocolates to green bath amenities, as well as a bottle of Bonterra Vineyards biodynamic wine and a tree planted in California in honor of their love. The package can be booked through the end of the year directly through the hotel or online at http://www.jdvhotels.com using the promo code SEED.
Were committed to sustainability and have been for years, said Chip Conley, Joie de Vivres founder and CEO. Our Green Dreams program applies that mission in a number of areas at our properties, from recycling to energy and water conservation. The romance package gives our guests a chance to learn more about what we are doing for the environment and make a statement about their own values. Five of the 10 hotels to receive San Francisco Green Business certification are Joie de Vivre hotels. One of them, the Hotel Carlton, received LEED-Gold certification in the existing buildings category in 2009, making it the greenest hotel in San Francisco by U.S. Green Building Council standards. The company also recently rolled out a compostable line of bath amenities from Lather in the majority of its hotels. More information about Green Dreams is available here.
